    My orders were shipped pretty quickly. Placed one on the 11th and another on the 13th for a total of five shirts, got shipping confirmation on 16th (they were actually picked up on Monday, 18th).

    I forgot to specify unfused collars and cuffs for my first order of two shirts, and only remembered a day after. It was too late since the collars and cuffs were already fused by then, but I requested extra fabric so I could get unfused collars and cuffs made locally, which Luxire graciously included.

    Their process is extremely speedy, I find, with a straightforward order of shirts only. Any remaking or alteration seriously messes up the chain and results in a lot of downtime, which I think is what's occurring to people sending in shirts for remaking.

    I have a feeling that alterations and remakes are not processes that are directly integrated in their supply chain. For good reason anyway -- alterations and remakes don't generate revenue.

    I should be receiving the shirts sometime this week and I'll report back then. I hope I don't get hit by duties.

    Wow, people are getting their shipping notifications within a week of placing their order. That is incredibly fast.

    So, not sure if I am just having bad luck or if this is a problem with the production of luxire shirts. I finally got a shirt to work out for me, once I saw that it was good to go I ordered up 3 more shirts with the only change being a very small tweek to the collar. I got the shirts in today was all excited, put one and notice the fit of the shirt was not the same. It is pulling over the yolk of the shirt and I feel some movement restriction when I try and raise my arms above 90 degrees.

    Here is a picture of the problem, I am a bit disappointed because this was not there on the last shirt that I ordered and this is an issue on all 3 of the shirts I got today.

    Luxire, two things

    1. I have been a happy customer since I started ordering but man this soft blue herringbone shirt is fantastic. Nailed the fit, and this material is awesome especially for the price, having a stylegasm trying it on. Anyone who doesn't have this in their wardrobe needs to be sent to the vogue forums or something.

    2. I think the person who is in charge of the collar stays might need a vacation...instead of the nice black collar stay holders I got a whole bunch of assorted ones just thrown in. Now Im not complaining - the more collar stays the merrier - but it came across as frustrated and im just thinking her or she could do with an afternoon off or something :p

    Ya, I found this as well when I got my shirts today, they were not even in the box, just rattling around the shipping bag. I zip lock bag would have made this much cleaner looking if they holders are costing too much.

    It is not holders, it is the shipping charges which increase by weight or by dimensions which restrict most of the companies shipping out of US to avoid such necessities.

    Thank you for the feedback. Will have that addressed.

    Table21,
    I got the same issue. It happens to all my shirts and I haven't solved the issue yet. It would be good to mention it to Luxire and ask them to adjust the pattern

    I suggest taking a look at the size of the armhole while you're at it, it looks like it's a bit too small to me, which can make things very uncomfortable.

    Looks like the armhole is too tight. The right armhole of the last two shirts was made a 3/4" smaller than ordered, very uncomfortable if your armhole is already on the tight side.

    Of the cheapest blue fabrics, I randomly chose two.

    1x Easy-to-Iron Blue Chambray
    1x Pale Blue Poplin 2/100

    I have already opened the shirts so pictures won't be possible. It seems that the picture has been resized while uploading from my iPad

    Even on your iPad, you can edit the picture size before posting. Note the numbers next to the words "width" and "height"...
